Two Xperix biometric scanners pass BixeLab Level 2 PAD assessment
Xperix’s RealScan S60 fingerprint scanner is the first ten-print enrollment scanner to obtain PAD Level 2 standard. In a release, the South Korean biometrics firm announced that the Realscan S60 and the BioMini Slim 2 scanners attained the level 2 standard in ISO/IEC 30107-3 Presentation Attack Detection (PAD) as assessed by BixeLab.
Both scanners achieved a 100 percent success rate in detecting sophisticated simulated spoofing attacks, including biometric spoofs made with a variety of materials, from clay to gelatin.
BixeLab, a biometric and identity testing lab accredited by the NIST under NVLAP [Lab Code: 600301-0] and FIDO, assessed the liveness mechanisms of Xperix’s scanners following the guidelines of ISO/IEC 30107-1 and ISO/IEC 30107-3 compliance standards. Their letters of confirmation, which are available for download, provide details of the assessment, which threw hundreds of B Level attack presentations at the scanners alongside a smaller sample of bona fide presentations.
Pointing to the growing market for ABIS and other unmanned automation systems, Steve Yun, the CEO of Xperix, says the PAD Level 2 standard is “an essential requirement at Europe’s Entry/Exit System (EES) and many unmanned entry and payment systems where there are concerns about spoofing vulnerabilities.”
The Seoul-headquartered Xperix rebranded from its former name, Suprema ID, in June, to reflect a more comprehensive approach to digital identity.
BixeLab wins award for exporting Australian expertise globally
BixeLab has its own cause for celebration: the Canberra-based firm has been recognized by the ACT Chief Minister’s Export Awards, taking honours in the small business category. A post on the firm’s LinkedIn page said that “BixeLab, as only the second NIST-accredited lab for biometric testing in the world, is proud to demonstrate ACT (Australian Capital Territory) and Australian innovation and leadership in this important field through exporting its services widely.”
